Evening Prayer for the Mayoral Assembly 
Wednesday 28 April, 5–5:45pm

Christian leaders from London Citizens are hosting an evening prayer open to Christians across London before the accountability assembly with mayoral candidates Sadiq Khan and Shaun Bailey.

Join Christians from across London Citizens as they reflect on the Manifesto, build relationships, and pray for the work of the Holy Spirit in this action. This is an ideal opportunity for non-member Christian leaders to experience something of the work of community organising and Christian mission. 

The Mayor of London has a budget of over £17 billion. The upcoming Mayoral Election is an opportunity for us to hold the next mayor to account. They’ve created a manifesto that will benefit our city, the result of listening and strategy workshops involving thousands of ordinary Londoners over the last two years. Along with 240+ member organisations, they have chosen these priority areas:

  • Housing and Homelessness
  • Youth Safety
  • Living Wage
  • A Welcoming London for Migrants
  • Just Transition: Green Jobs
